There is a setting now, in the settings from the E menu to enable high dpi scaling. It caused issues for too many players when this was enabled by default.

Thanks, I actually just found this on my own and was about to come back and edit my reply.

One thing I noticed is it doesn't seem to take info from winecfg.

It also seems to use the display base resolution to discover if it should scale, meaning, if I've used xrandr to set scaling on a second monitor (basically required if you have a hidpi display as your main and a 'normal' display for your second) it turns off hidpi scaling, resulting in a small rendering again.
I wouldn't expect a fix to this really - at least until upstream xorg starts including the mouse boundary patch (bug page / relevant patch)

May you make: https://binaries.eveonline.com/ to have free access, to be able to download latest version of tar.gz, in case that update didn't work?

System is a new Ubuntu 16.04.1 LTS Desktop installation.

You are running evelauncher.sh? It looks like the file "evelauncher" (not ".sh", but in the same directory) is not marked executable and your shell is trying to run it as a shell script, which, of course, fails.

Make sure you extract the launcher .tar correctly so it preserves permissions -- easiest would be to rename (or delete) where you extracted it before and start over from the downloaded .tar file.


Im getting this exact same error but I cant seem to run the script if it is running the executable.
Im pretty new to using linux and have got it to just learn how to use it.

Nothing I do seems to run the script and this error keeps coming up.

I'm very close to getting this to work and super excited to play EVE on linux, however I was having some permission issues. I was able to get the launcher to run in either my home account or root, but the game would only fully come up in root. As I didn't want to run in root everytime I wanted to play, the logs gave me an indication that there was a database my account didn't have access to for some reason. I brute forced my account to own everything in the home directory for the account and this got the launcher to run however, the game never quite gets going. Here is the most recent log snippet (the dotted lines represent many "fixme" statements). Does anyone have any suggestions on how to debug/fix?

Running Mint 18 Cinnamon with a GTX 1050 and I can't launch the game. This is a fresh install with only the drivers and a Flash plugin installed. The launcher lets me log in, however when I click the play button the bar goes green for a split second then nothing. Running the launcher from the terminal shows a few warnings that I can't make sense of. Anyone have any thoughts or logs that could point to the cause?

Here's the terminal output

can confirm the same problem on a fresh Ubuntu 16.04 with same output, also loglite is clean as whistle.

EDIT: i got it fixed by installing libldap(32 bit) after this the client tried to start and the log files started generating, and took it from there installing every missing library for wine. Eve runs flawlessly so far.

I can confirm this solution also worked for me and my Radeon RX 48 under Ubuntu 16.04. Fantasitc!!

The launcher does appear but at the bottom I see this message:

"Error! See log for details! 0.0%"

Anybody know where I can find the log?

I had the exact same problem. All I did to fix it was to let it be for a while, then close the launcher and open it again.

Sadly, it doesn't work for me.
The Launcher wants me to reenter my Steam-Password (strange...), it opens a Steam password window. It keeps asking me every 3 seconds, while the launcher starts and just says "Error! See log for details! 0.0%", but there are no logfiles, just the terminal output, which seems to be fine. In the background the regular Steam runs perfectly fine, as far as i can tell...

I'm also still struggling to get this running. The exefile.exe just hangs. Does anyone know how to start this from the command line so that one can see what errors are being spit back on the command line? The logs have lots of "fixme" statements, but I'm unsure if any of them are critical or causing the failure.

It seams like the launcher stops while populating the wine environment with EVE's files, the binary is missing. This happens just after it creates an installation of wine in .eve. Going into setting and selecting "Use dev versions - Latest" then restarting a couple of times, I was able to get past the Error and to the "Ready" state. Though it seam using this option leaves you with installing the right 32-bit library files.

Love to see a solution on this, was working so perfect "out of the box".

Hi everybody,

When trying to run the launcher, I got those first errors on the terminal :

daax@daaxsager:~/Bureau/evelauncher$ sh ./evelauncher.sh

The launcher starts anyway. On the first launch, a lot of files have been downloaded, and after that I see in the bottom screen of the launcher a message stating :

Quote:
Error! See log for details 0.0%


So I lauched the Loglite app within the evelauncher directory and I got all thos errors : http://pastebin.com/n1faEWta

It seems that it fails to find the source directory :

What should I do with that?Sad

Good evening,

the launcher ran fine for me for weeks now, and it's great to see that someone made the effort to get it working.
Right after installing EVE everythink worked pretty well. Lately the game didn't work so well anymore and I decided to give it a clean install.
The typical errormessages appeared in the terminal and the second error message while updating - but nevertheless the launcher did tell me it was up to date and ready to go eventually.
But that's it. I can click play and after a few seconds the Icon changes back to the Play symbol and nothing happens.
I'd love to get back to playing eve on linux. Any help would be appreciated.
